WWE LOWERS FINANCIAL OUTLOOK FOR THE REST OF 2013
WWE® Revises 2013 Outlook
STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WWE (WWE) today announced a revised financial outlook for the full year ending December 31, 2013. The Company expects 2013 OIBDA results, excluding the impact of film impairments, to range between $40 million and $50 million.1,2 The revision is primarily due to several recent developments that caused an approximate 5% reduction in second half revenue expectations. This, coupled with the Company’s high operating leverage, was the primary driver of the change in expected earnings. (See Exhibit: 2013 Outlook below)
“Our revised 2013 Outlook reflects a relatively moderate change in our second half revenue expectations and our continued investment in the WWE brand and our content,” said George Barrios, Chief Financial Officer. “Given the rising value of content in the market place, we believe these investments will maximize WWE’s future earnings as we renegotiate our four largest television distribution agreements and potentially launch a WWE Network.”
